While divine masculine and divine feminine energy are equal in value, each offers unique benefits and powers.
Regardless of your gender, you can tap into aspects of both forms of energy and use them to empower yourself to succeed.
However, if you're female, you have access to a form of divine feminine energy that makes you more intuitive, emotionally aware, self-motivated, and collaborative.
This type of energy will serve you well no matter what your goals – whether you want to find love, follow your best career path, accumulate wealth, or simply become happier.
But what do you need to do to access this energy?
In this article, we'll first explain what divine feminine energy actually is, and how it differs from masculine energy. Then, we'll help you tap into your own feminine energy today, with seven effective practical techniques.
By harnessing and using your distinctively female power, you prime yourself for success and to become your very best self.
There's a balance of masculine and feminine energy within all of us.
So, what do we mean when we talk about feminine energy?
This is the energy of intuition – the kind that comes from your gut, and from your heart.
It is also the energy of interpersonal connection.
It gives rise to empathy, to sensuality, and to receptivity.
When we are full of this energy we tend to gravitate toward the path that is most emotionally fulfilling for us.
Feminine energy fosters strong, intimate, and nurturing bonds with other people.
It promotes self-compassion and self-love as well.
Masculine energy is also very valuable, and we all need the aforementioned mix of the masculine and the feminine energy.
Masculine energy differs from feminine in that it is linked to ambition, striving, asserting, and persisting.
So, this sort of energy helps us stay resilient in the face of obstacles.
It can also gives us the momentum we need to reach our highest goals.
However, when we have an excess of masculine energy, we can become excessively goal-focused and lose our sense of connection.
This can not only lead to shallower relationships but also to becoming out of tune without ourselves and our own needs.
Now we have an understanding of the difference between feminine and masculine energy, let's talk about how you can facilitate a divine feminine awakening.
Here are seven techniques you can start practicing today if you want to increase feminine energy and unleash the goddess within.
Pranayama is an ancient breathing technique that can immediately help you tap into your feminine energy.
It helps you to fully inhabit your body, to experience the present moment and to feel the deep connection you have with the universe.
To practice pranayama (sometimes called ‘moon-piercing breath'), first find a comfortable place where you will not be disturbed.
Relax your body, and touch your thumb and middle finger to the space between your eyebrows – this is the space that represents your third eye, or the seat of your intuition.
Next, close your eyes, and press down on your right nostril with your thumb so that when you breathe in, you do so through your left nostril only.
Then, swap over, pressing down on your left nostril as you breathe out, so that you exhale through your right nostril only. Practice this sequence at least twenty times, and notice how you feel.
Feminine energy is a kind of energetic kinetic energy.
Moving your body will always help you connect with your femininity.
Any form of movement will work here.
For example, you can use yoga or any form of dance.
Feminine energy is often described as being like the wind or the ocean, as it is constant motion and forever changing.
If you want to awaken your inner goddess, chakra dancing is one of the very best movement techniques you can use.
To practice chakra dancing, light several candles, and turn off the lights. Put on a piece of music that makes you feel connected to your emotions, and close your eyes.
Then, dance in whatever way feels most natural to you.
There's no set movement or style you need to use – this exercise is all about getting in tune with melody and feeling, and letting your body express your responsiveness.
As we noted at the outset, you tap into – and build – your feminine energy when you connect with your feelings and intuitions.
Journaling is a great way of practicing self-expression.
It can also facilitate emotional healing by helping you to process emotions and experiences.
If you feel like you don't know how to journal, don't worry.
Set a small, manageable goal like writing a page (or even half a page) at the end of the day.
You can outline what you've experienced, or you can choose just to capture a meaningful moment that resonated with you.
If you're already experienced at journaling and are looking for ways to build your feminine energy, challenge yourself to dig deep into one feeling in each entry.
Where did you feel it in your body? What triggered it? If it was a color or a shape, what would it look like? What does it inspire you to do?
Creating a sacred space is a wonderful way to prepare a meditation area or a place to journal.
If you think about it, you already have experience in creating sacred space.
You do it every time you sink into a candlelit bubble bath or make your living room beautiful for a dinner party.
This technique is just a new way of activating and strengthening that skill.
Cleanse the space by using a smudge stick or palo Santo stick.
If you don't have one of these, you can walk around the room with a white candle, starting from east to west. As you move, say “I cleanse this space of all that is not mine.”
Then, choose an item for the space that represents each element – perhaps another candle for fire, a stone for the earth, a feather for air, and a bowl of water. Add your own further items that make the space feel comfortable and unique.
You may wish to be in nature and experience forest bathing, which is an art of Shinrin-Yoku that originates from Japan.
Mudras are hand gestures that you can use to shift your energy towards the divine feminine.
A particularly powerful one is the Yoni Mudra, which helps to calm your thoughts.
To adopt this gesture, hold your palms together and point the fingers downwards.
Then, open up your palms into the shape of an inverted triangle – image the thumbs as the stabilizing base of that triangle.
Finally, flip your middle finger, ring finger, and little fingers so that their backs touch.
At this point, you should be pointing your thumbs upwards a little.
While the Yoni Mudra emphasizes peace, the Kali Mudra is about using your feminine energy for power and change.
It is named after the destructive and creative goddess Kali.
To adopt it, lace your fingers together and plant your left thumb on top of the right thumb.
Then, straighten your pointer fingers, touch them together, and point them straight ahead.
Consistently and diligently practicing self-love is perhaps the very best technique for increasing the divine feminine energy inside you.
This means not only learning to love your body but also learning to love your soul – flaws and all.
Self-love is about recognizing your unconditional value, and about expecting others to recognize and respect that too.
We all struggle with this, especially if we were raised to associate our worth with our looks or our successes.
One thing you can do to build self-love is to practice self-compassion meditations.
Just close your eyes, breathe deeply, and take a few minutes to center yourself.
Then, repeatedly recite an affirmation like “I love and accept myself for everything I am” or “I embrace my power and my divine feminine energy.”
You can use any statement you like, as long as it supports self-love and respect.
As we noted at the outset, divine feminine energy is also innately sensual.
One way to tap into this is to perform another kind of movement session, allowing yourself to really move your hips and dance as seductively as you can.
Some women find this exercise most empowering when done on all fours, or naked.
The key idea here is just to unashamedly embody pure, sensual movement.
It's also important to address the negative lessons you may have internalized about sexuality.
Women are often shamed for female sexual energy.
Be conscious of whether you tend to shut down your own sexual thoughts.
Make a habit of letting them in, of being curious enough about them to follow them wherever they lead.
Try to embody this same curiosity if you're in a sexual relationship with someone else – you tap into divine feminine energy when you show partners what you want and need, instead of focusing solely on pleasing them.

“When you feel you are being moved by the creative spirit, you are in fact being moved by the divine feminine.”
– Teri Degler
“The deep Feminine, the mystery of consciousness, She who is life, is longing for our transformation as much as we are.
She holds back, allowing us free reign to choose, nudging us occasionally with synchronicities, illness, births, and deaths… But when we make space for Her, she rushes into all the gaps, engulfing us with her desire for life and expression.
This is what She longs for, this is what we are for: experiencing the Feminine through ourselves.
We simply need to slow down and find where to put our conscious attention.
And it is this, this willingness to look again, this willingness to put consciousness onto our places of unconsciousness, to express what we have always avoided, which starts the process of unblocking, so that She may flow through.”
– Lucy H. Pearce
“Women are emotional in order to feel the divine energy at the highest levels and be supreme healers and lovers and mothers. Not to drive men insane. Her deep spiritual connection to feelings is to inspire a man to his spiritual heights as well. She is an oracle.”

“If we can rediscover in ourselves the hidden beauty of this receptive devotion, if we can learn how to be still without inaction, how to ‘further life’ without willed purpose, how to serve without demanding prestige, and how to nourish without domination: then we shall be women again out of whose earth the light may shine.”
